California area high school is a great school. It’s easy to learn the material with it being small. There are nice facilities for sports and other activities you can participate in. I feel extremely safe while in the school. I have no worry of anything bad happening. The teachers give us a lot of one on one time if needed to help better understand the material. It helps prepare us for college or whatever we intend on doing after high school. It is very close to calu where a decent amount of people attend after high school. It makes it easier for us to transition to it since we’re so close to the campus.
I really love my school, it’s a great environment for everyone. The lack of diverse clubs is disappointing, but that is outshined by the amazing athletic aspect of the school. The teachers genuinely care about each and every student.
